CINEMOOD presents mini-projector for family viewing at CES 2016
CINEMOOD will be launching its handheld mini-projector at CES 2016 in Las Vegas. CINEMOOD, a start-up preparing to launch an Indiegogo campaign, will present a preview of its beta Version 2 device at the international tradeshow.
Version 2 will include kid-friendly pre-loaded content and access to CINEMOOD's proprietary "Tales" cloud store, which aims to turn any surface into a movie screen by aiming the projector at the desired viewing location.
"CINEMOOD's team believes in the magic of everyday moments and that in today's ever-changing world that divides generations into digital natives and immigrants, we're creating a place where they all can get together and create beautiful memories," Mike Bukhovtsev, Founder of the CINEMOOD project, said in a statement. "CINEMOOD has seen great commercial success in Europe and now the team is looking to transform the simple, everyday enjoyment of watching quality children's programming into an easy and rewarding experience both for parents and their children."
CINEMOOD's portable projector includes preloaded, family friendly content and user content that can be downloaded via a USB. ToonBox, an international animation studio is one of CINEMOOD's content partners and CINEMOOD is currently in negotiations with other content libraries to expand their material.
CINEMOOD allows users to view multiple types of media including video (mp4, avi, others), audio (mp3), illustrated books (pdf) and family photos (jpeg, png). An Android mobile app extends CINEMOOD's features by doing things like sending family Video Messages and incorporating remote control adds to the device's functionality. It also allows user content to be downloaded to the device's current version via USB.
CINEMOOD's next version's release, which will be launched following the Indiegogo campaign in March, will include: Shadow Theater, a Gaming Gyroscope and extended compatibility with smartphones (iOS and Android) that allows parental control and the ability to easily download content via subscription.
